From the Back Cover:

Welcome to the world of financial statement analysis! Financial statements contain numerous disclosures about business performance, and Bergevin's Financial Statement Analysis: An Integrated Approach can help you make better business decisions!

  • Only Bergevin teaches you how to find and access needed information-rather than assuming you know how to find resources.
  • Only Bergevin examines the political, regulatory, economic, financial, managerial, marketing, and accounting considerations that affect financial statements.
  • Only Bergevin introduces a running fictional case (eXTREMESTUFF.com) to help you learn basic analytical skills.
  • Only Bergevin introduces you to a variety of industries so that you can compare and assess the performance of a variety of companies in a given industry. For example, the financial statements of Apple Computer are benchmarked against those of Compaq, Dell, and Gateway.
  • Only Bergevin helps you develop analytical skills by accessing recent financial disclosures online and then incorporating this information into industry case analysis.

Pete resides in Valdosta, Georgia with wife Linda, daughter Jillian, son Matthew, three dogs, and two horses.
